Just five miles south of Chichester is the village of Highleigh in a peaceful area of farmland and pretty country lanes.
In the heart of the village there is an unusual and most attractive house currently for sale with Henry Adams at a guide price of £1.1million.
This is a house for entertaining, with a truly gorgeous interior, elegant and rather glamorous, but extremely comfortable.
Both the principal reception rooms have wide French doors opening onto large paved terraces, perfectly designed for summer dining.
Exposed beams in the sitting room and the vaulted dining room add character and a terrific sense of space to the house.
On the ground floor there is a lovely traditional kitchen opening into a conservatory, four reception rooms which include a particularly large and beautifully proportioned drawing room, two double bedrooms and two bathrooms, and upstairs there are two further double bedrooms and two bathrooms, with a galleried landing.
The gardens extend to two thirds of an acre and are truly stunning and thoughtfully landscaped, with secluded corners and a generous area of lawn bordered by a spectacular array of well-stocked flower beds and flowering shrubs.
There is also a charming south facing summerhouse at the side of the main patio.
At the front of the house there is a triple garage and a double car port, with a further gravelled parking area.
This is a wonderful property, close to the coast, the harbour and to Chichester.
